On a reseach trip, unusual format as I am part of a team of scholars
We are working on 1970s feminism so the process of consciousness raising (CR) becomes central to our work
We participate in a version of CR, sort of CR light
In response to one question, I tell about my abortion
I have known a few of these women for decades but some women present are completely new to me that night
This incident is the best way I can encapsulate my attitude one month after the abortion.
It is me. I speak of it like I speak of any aspect of my self and my experiences.
Every time I tell I feel more liberated.
